Clean Water for the 1970's, A Status Report.
Department of the Interior, Washington, DC. Federal Water Quality Administration.
This report describes the past activities and future plans of the Federal Water Quality Administration (FWQA). The first of the four sections in the report provides general discussion about these forms of water pollution: municipal wastes, industrial wastes, thermal pollution, oil and hazardous substances, mine drainage, sedimentation and erosion, feed lot pollution and other agricultural waste, and waste from watercraft. The second section, A Water Pollution Control Program for the 1970's, considers legislation and programs to improve financing of municipal treatment, standards and enforcement, assistance to the states, and other federal activities. The next section, Programs for Water Pollution Control, constitutes the major portion of the report, and considers past and present programs and issues: regulatory programs; assistance programs; planning and basic studies; research, development, and demonstration programs; the human element; and international activities. The final section reviews the organization, personnel, facilities, and budgetary resources of the FWQA. Included are many illustrations and photographs. (PR)
